Promoting early childhood development
Born Learning is a national public engagement campaign, focused on creating early learning opportunities for young children. Public service advertising, a website, and educational materials give parents and informal caregivers easy, "doable" action steps to help young children learn.
The Born Learning campaign shows how to turn everyday activities into opportunities to encourage learning. It's built on the idea that while children are born learning, parents, grandparents, and caregivers can encourage that learning in everyday moments.
Born Learning Trails: Our United Way has worked with local communities and organizations to create Born Learning Trails in our region. Parents, young children, and groups can visit a trail to enjoy the outdoors and to combine movements with words. A great way to promote using words and play. Enjoy!
